Ithmar Capital Key Developments

Ithmar Reportedly To List A Unit

Ithmar Capital has tapped Credit Suisse AG and Deutsche Bank AG (DB:DBK) to manage the flotation of a so-called special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), which lists on the Dubai bourse by 2014 end and then uses the cash raised from the flotation to make private equity-style investments, Reuters reported citing sources close to the matter. The listing will aim to raise around $436 million, with proceeds to be used to invest in healthcare and education assets, including buying stakes in firms which IIthmar Capital currently owns- most notably some of its 20% holding in Al Noor Hospitals Group Plc (LSE:ANH). Subscription could begin as early as October 2014. Repeated calls to Ithmar Capital went unanswered.

Ithmar Capital Plans IPO

Ithmar Capital intends to divest shares to the public in order to raise cash for new investments, sources said. Two sources stated that Ithmar Capital is looking to raise AED 3 billion ($816.8 million) for new assets, particularly in the education and healthcare industry. An Ithmar executive confirmed plans for an initial public offering (IPO). A third source stated that it is expected to finalize details in the next few weeks and another source said it had always planned a Dubai IPO.
